Water Dragon Year 2012

I am back to blogging, and shall resume to blog hop very soon. Let me share with you some memorable pictures which were taken in this Chinese New  Year
On CNY eve, we had reunion lunch at PIL's house. MIL cooked up a storm in the kitchen and prepared us 12 different yummy dishes. I was only there to help her cleaning up the cooking utensils.
After the reunion lunch, we went to the mall for some last minute shopping and catching Ah Beng The Movie. Then, we went back home watching Astro AEC live telecast count down concert on TV.
On Chinese New Year Day 1, we took a family portrait after coming back from praying in 2 temples. I made April and May taking a short nap, so that their batteries could last till late at night.
After having steamboat at PIL's house, we went to meet up with some old classmates. While all hubbies were playing cards and drinking beer, we, women caught up with each other on our latest condition.
On Chinese New Year Day 3, Barbara, her hubby and her lil missy Ashley came all the way to our place to meet up with Yvonne, Hayley, Angeline and me. It was so nice of her to bring each of us a gift. It was indeed a very great meet up with her and her loved ones. Andy is such a friendly guy and Ashley is sweet and very pretty in person. Once again, I thank her for making this meet up happened. She was actually planning for this meet up a year ago. It wasn't happened last year due to her hubby's business assignment in Thailand. Finally, we all made it this year. We should cherish our friendship and make it last forever.

  10. It is wonderful to be able to meet all you nice ladies. Have been very excited about it :) I am so glad that we can finally meet up after knowing each other for a few years online :) I just told Andy that you said he's a friendly guy..hahahahahaaa.

  15. Your MIL is an amazing cook... 12 dishes for a meal is really no joke! My MIL is not that capable anymore so we did pot-luck this year to help her out.
